Audi A1, Audi A8, BMW 5 Series, BMW X3, Jaguar XJ, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Nissan LEAF, Porsche Cayenne, and the Volvo S/V60. A vehicle seems to be missing from this list… something that took home Motor Trend’s 2011 Car of the Year and a slew of other notable awards in the United States.
For some reason, the Chevrolet Volt was left out of the shortlist picture of the 2011 World Car of the Year award nominees. The current list of ten will be thinned out to a list of just three, with the winner to be announced at the 2011 New York International Auto Show in April. An American branded car has never won the award.
